We represent both for-profit and non-profit enterprises with a core social mission. From corporate structuring and start-up financing to contract drafting and beyond, we understand the unique legal needs of social enterprises. Our experience includes designing ‘hybrid’ legal structures, and working with certified B Corporations and L3Cs. We assist non-profit organizations with obtaining tax-exempt status and staying in compliance with fundraising regulations. We advise on cause marketing campaigns and assist commercial co-venturers with state registration and disclosure requirements.
